Snapchat

Lukas Blakk is a Mobile Release Engineer who has been driving weekly mobile client app releases at Snapchat for over 3 years. She has 10+ cumulative years of experience at the shipping end of several top-tier software companies as she was previously responsible for shipping Pinterest on a weekly basis and before that, the Firefox (Mozilla) browser to both desktop computers and mobile devices. Speed, helping developers get their code into customer’s hands, and removing chances for human error are her top three priorities.
